So it’s been over a year since I last posted. A lot has gone on so itll take a bit to fully update.
But the biggest change. Was our newest addition to the family.
James J. Was born in April of this year. Making us a family of 4.
We also had kidding season again this year. Giving us 2 new doelings to breed. And 3 bucklings. Sold 2 bucklings they went to a new home together. Kept the 3rd little buckling as a pet for our oldest son. As he fell in love with the little guy.
Then we had our first calving on the farm. Our heifer had a nice size bull calf.
We have fox problems this year which has taken out a lot of my birds. The few remaining I had to put into chicken tractors to keep them safe till we get rid of the fox issue.
We still have our pigs and had a litter of piglets. That I am raising to sell as butcher hogs.
Also have our 2 large gardens.
And have decided to start raising guinea birds. Not only are they beautiful but they are guard birds to help alert when there are predators.
My hubby also started a YouTube channel as well you should check it out.
Watch “Weekend warrior outdoors” on YouTube
It’s about hunting, fishing, metal detecting and anything that’s an adventure. His moto “take a kid on an outdoor adventure”. As every adventure our oldest son is along and enjoying each moment. And once our youngest is able he’ll be going on the adventures also.
So my blog will not only be about my ramblings on the farm, but also posts on our YouTube channel.
Nice day out in the boat.
So after 5 days of fishing and not catching one thing. Not even a weed or log!! Which is not like me. I could always guarantee that I’d get hung up on least something.
But alas nope. Nothing zilch nada! Hubby was like your getting bored of fishing aren’t you. Nah a tad frustrated perhaps. I like to sit on a boat. And just soak in the rays and scenery. I’m pretty easy going.
Doesn’t take much really to keep me quiet and at peace. At least outwardly. Inside my head it can be rather busy. And most times not peaceful. Which is why I’m quite content to just sit and enjoy the day. So I have moments to try and gather my thoughts. Or play a story out in my head. I can’t tell you how many adventures I’ve had in the safety of my mind. If only I had the nak to get them out on paper.
But anyways. Today being day 6 of fishing. I wasn’t to hopeful. J caught a sunny. And another. Kid can sure fish. That’s his dad’s genetics not mine Ha! His love for mayo sandwiches that’s from me!
I after many casts and I mean many. I finally caught a small 6in sunny. And one more. Then NOTHING! Hey least i caught something.
We moved spots. Then the fish really got to biting. I caught a 13 inch crappie. Tons of large mouth bass. And a few black bullheads. Finally the dry spell was over. Least this one. Who knows what’s to come?
But I will not complain about enjoying a nice boat ride. In such great weather. Feels like summer here. Temps in the upper 70’s and lows in the 50’s.
Fun on the water.
A day out boating/fishing. We just bought the boat last week. And go to take it out today. First to the lake. Where my hubby caught a 3lb northern. J got to drive the boat. And I spent my time trying to catch a fish and just enjoying the sun.
Next we headed to the river. Trying to catch some cat fish. My one best friend asked for cat fish for their family. So I was on a mission. Sadly I came up empty handed. J caught 2 both 2 small. One was just 3 inches long. And the other was just over 4 ounces. Not good eaters. J also caught a 1lb carp. While hubby and I caught nothing. Ha! Isn’t that how it goes?
I did have to hike back to the car to get our cat fish bait. (Its a weird recipe and smells so strongly of garlic). Its suppose to attract cat fish. But….lol….
I did think about on my way back with the bait that if vampires were a thing. I’d be safe. Cuz of said bait Ha!
Also got to see a couple deer walk across.
When we went to pull up the anchor. Which was my job. I teased and said it was my line to catch the loch Ness monster. That turned into quite the experience. Cuz at the lake the northern had wrapped the stringer around it. So when I pulled the anchor up there waa the northern attached to it. Caught me by surprise.
Next. As I brought up or tried to bring the anchor up at the river. I couldn’t get it to budge. I pulled and jerked. And yanked. For the life of me i couldn’t get it up. I had my feet braced on the side of the boat to give me leverage. Pulled…. nothing….
I was like well crap I’ve gone and done it I caught the loch Ness monster. And this sucker is heavy. Which brought on laughter from hubby and J.
Sadly to report though the loch Ness monster got away. He’s free to terrioze another poor anchor person. Ha!
(And just an fyi it’s all just humor. With the loch Ness monster and the vampire thing) gotta create your own fun and adventures.
It was a great day. And now I’m exhausted going to crawl into bed and sleep.
Another busy day ahead tomorrow. …
So good night. I’ll be back to share more adventures with you all. Also in due time i will do a blog on me personally. Give you a more in-depth view of the gal behind the blog. And a few pictures. So you can have a face to go with my stories.
